[Comp-neuro] Summer school at Bangalore, India: Computational Approaches to Learning and Memory

Announcing a new course:

Dates: 28th June to 12th July, 2014

CAMP @ Bangalore is a 15-day summer school on the theory and simulation of learning, memory and plasticity in the brain. PhD students and post-docs from theoretical and/or experimental backgrounds (physics, math, neuroscience, engineering, etc.) are welcome. Familiarity with programming, dynamical systems, and/or computational neuroscience is highly desirable. Master's or Bachelor's degree students can apply if they have sufficient background. The course will start with remedial tutorials on neuroscience / math / programming and then work upwards from sub-cellular electrical and chemical signaling in neurons, onward to micro-circuits and networks, all with an emphasis on learning, memory and plasticity.

Students worldwide are encouraged to apply online at latest by 30th Mar, 2014.

A poster for the school can be downloaded at the course website. Please circulate the information widely.
